Knowledge without justice ought to be called cunning rather than wisdom.
Plato

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
Nelson Mandela

Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.
T. S. Eliot

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.
Confucius

Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance.
George Bernard Shaw

Silence is a source of great strength.
Lao Tzu

If you only have a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.
Abraham Maslow

All men profess honesty as long as they can. To believe all men honest would be folly. To believe none so is something worse.
John Quincy Adams

Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it's thinking of yourself less.
C. S. Lewis

Until the great mass of the people shall be filled with the sense of responsibility for each other's welfare, social justice can never be attained.
Helen Keller

Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility.
Sigmund Freud

The greatest way to live with honor in this world is to be what we pretend to be.
Socrates

Good fiction creates empathy. A novel takes you somewhere and asks you to look through the eyes of another person, to live another life.
Barbara Kingsolver

They say it is hard to face your demons. Actually it is very easy. All you need to do is look into a mirror.

"There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end they just have to have faith.--
Ain't that a bitch?"

"I am going to miss out on the weightlifters' annual ball, which is on the same night as ours - I certainly regret not getting to attend that one."

-Oliver Lehmann, head manager of the Ball Night for the Sciences of Vienna, a festive ball in support of scientific and open-minded values and with the backing of all major universities and higher schools of the city. The annual event was launched after the far-rightwing party FPÖ took over the Academicians' Ball and aggressively made it their own. There are over 400 public balls organized every winter in the capital of waltz, with classical and modern dancing.

Actually, I would like to watch the Weightlifters' ball too. :)

The pen isn't mightier than the sword.
Pens don't win battles.
Swords don't write poetry.
Instead, mighty is the hand that knows when to take up a pen, and when to take up a sword. - Unknown.

"Knowledge is like, well, it is like shoes. If you buy shoes yourself, they will stretch out and fit eventually, but if you take someone's shoes, even if they are the same size, they will be uncomfortable. Not at the beginning, however- at first it will be cozy and nice, it will seem like they have survived their trials... But then it turns out you can't run as fast as you'd like..."~A writer from my own country, quote from one of his books in the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Universe (obviously due to my own privacy and the fact I don't want to reveal where exactly I'm from I can't say who that is, if you know it then kudos to you), translated by me.
